Mike Thompson, the Free Press’ award-winning editorial cartoonist/animator, is drawing “caption this” cartoons in Sports every other Sunday.

How would you fill in the empty bubble?

We picked our six favorites from nearly 130 suggestions, and now you get to vote on the winner until noon Friday.

(If you don't see the poll, refresh the page to correct the annoying glitch.)

Thompson will fill in the winning caption, and the completed cartoon will run online and in the Sunday Detroit Free Press.
